Douglasville in Douglas County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
This gift of land was deeded in old Spencerian style script and recorded among the first in Douglas County (April 9, 1874), D. W. Price Recording Clerk and John G. Maxwell, N.P., signing witness.
The tract became the site of several court houses – first a framed one, then the towered traditional brick edifice eventually destroyed by fire, and now upon the same spot the present modern Douglas County Court House.
The two Vansant brothers Rueben and Young, with their wives now rest in the private family cemetery just north of the railroad on West Strickland Street.
